I was born in Edinburgh and grew up in rural East Anglia. During my undergraduate studies in English Literature at the University of Bristol, I was able to cultivate my interest in visual art through my editorial roles with arts and culture publications and through my academic research into the relationship between literature and the plastic arts. This research was carried over into my masters degree in modern and contemporary English Literature at the University of Oxford, where I completed an interdisciplinary thesis on the ways in which figurative sculpture intersects with writing about the body. Having completed my degree, I joined a small team of journalists at an online creative culture magazine. I then worked with a print publication focusing on fashion, literature and culture, and from there I took up an editorial position with an educational creative platform. In 2019 I gained a writing placement as editorial assistant for an online publication working to showcase artists and practitioners within the creative industries. I now write and conduct interviews regularly for ArtMaze Mag; I have a particular interest in promoting the work of innovative emerging fine artists and underrepresented voices. Alongside my work with ArtMaze, I am currently enrolled on a creative writing course in London and am working towards the completion and publication of my debut novel.
